On their car rides to the hockey rink earlier this season, forward Brayden Schenn tried to keep his brother, Luke, in a positive mind-set after the defenseman was a healthy scratch for three straight games.
Now it's Luke's turn to pump up his brother.
Entering Tuesday's matchup against visiting Washington, Brayden Schenn had been held without a goal in his last 11 games.
"We've always had each other's backs," Luke Schenn said Tuesday after the morning skate at the Wells Fargo Center. "We've always pushed each other our whole lives."
Brayden Schenn went scoreless again Tuesday, and his night took a turn for the worse when he appeared to suffer a head injury as he was checked into the boards by Washington's Tom Wilson with 4 minutes, 43 seconds left in the second period. He did not return to the game The Flyers said only that he had an upper-body injury.
